Advanced Parking Aids
Odd as it sounds, some of the scariest moments for a driver occur when parking their vehicle. Infiniti and BMW hope to lessen parking fears with systems that use multiple wide-angle cameras to give the driver a virtual bird's-eye view of the car. If you prefer to leave parallel parking duties to someone else (well, technically something else), consider the latest-generation automatic parking technology offered by Ford and Audi. Both can identify an appropriately sized spot and automatically steer a vehicle into it. While your car will be momentarily possessed, we promise the experience will be less of a hair-raiser than trying to park it yourself.
